LAS VEGAS – Everyone hopes to have a lucky day in Las Vegas and that’s exactly what just happened to Isabelle Bowser – thanks to winning the $50,000 scavenger hunt sponsored by Kenn Viselman presents…, Inc. to promote its family film “The Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure” at Licensing Show 2012 in Las Vegas.

“You don’t win if you don’t try — that’s how I see it,” Isabelle told ZAMM.com Hollywood columnist Martin Grove immediately after her victory. Explaining she’s “ecstatic” about winning, Isabelle said it’s all about trying. “If you don’t win, all you can say is, I tried. And I tried — and I won!”

Entering, she noted, was as easy as following The Oogieloves on both Facebook and Twitter and taking a few photos at the five“Oogieloves” Licensing Expo 2012 locations — along with lifesize cutouts of the G rated live action interactive family adventure which stars Toni Braxton, Cloris Leachman, Christopher Lloyd, Chazz Palminteri,Cary Elwes and Jaime Pressly.

“Oogieloves,” from producer and distributor Kenn Viselman presents…, Inc., opens Oogust 29 at a projected 3200 theatres backed by a hefty studio-sized marketing budget to spread the word. The film’s trailer is already playing in theatres.

The contest’s $50,000 prize is exactly what Isabelle needed as she’s planning an upcoming business trip/vacation to China and the surprise money is really going to come in handy.

“I can’t wait to see the picture,’ she said. “I’m super, super excited! This is going to be a winner. I have a niece, who is just adorable, who runs around in her little tutu doing her little dance moves that she learned at her pre-school and I know she’s going to be all about 'Oogieloves.'”

Directed by Matthew Diamond (“So You Think You Can Dance”), the film is produced by Kenn Viselman (“Teletubbies,” “Thomas the Tank Engine”), co-produced by Angela Rivet and executive produced by Michael A. Chirco, Scot J. Moceri and David R. Schwarcz.

“Oogieloves” is the story of Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie, three unique young friends living in Lovelyloveville, who go on an unforgettable adventure when their plans for the best surprise birthday party ever go awry. It’s the first episode in Viselman’s planned franchise of three features with “The Oogieloves in the BIG Family Adventure” and “The Oogieloves in the BIG Holiday Adventure” to follow.

Isabelle’s fashion company, Bikini Shell, is based in Las Vegas, but she’s also in and out of Los Angeles for business and travels to other markets for events like Miami Fashion Week. The company’s Facebook page — Facebook.com/BikiniShell — is the easiest way to make contact.

“We (do) research and development,” she said. “We start with ready-to-wear styles, mainly swimwear (with) spring and fall styles. We'll have to see which designer’s going to come up with a cool suit for the 'Oogieloves' in their next movie.”
